• “She fought so hard for the women” – The Undertaker On Why Michelle McCool Should Be In The WWE Hall Of Fame
During an interview with The Dallas Morning News, WWF Legend The Undertaker was asked to pick one name who he thinks should be in the WWE Hall Of Fame.
The Phenom picked his wife – Michelle McCool.
Below is what Undertaker said:
“She was one, working in an era where the women didn’t get nearly the opportunities they do now. And she fought so hard for the women to, kind of, get more of a spotlight put on them.”
Below are McCool’s accomplishments in WWE:
– 2x Women’s Champion
– 2x Divas Champion
– 2008 SmackDown Diva Competition Winner
– 2010 WWE Diva Of The Year Slammy Award Winner
McCool retired from WWE in 2011, after losing a “Loser Leaves WWE” match against Layla at the Extreme Rules 2011 PPV.
During an interview on Lilian Garcia’s podcast in 2016, Michelle revealed that she decided to retire because people in WWE began thinking she was getting more opportunities because of her relationship with The Deadman.
Below is what she said:
“It was tough, just leaving in itself was tough because it got to a point where I was dealing with so much again mostly being Undertaker’s girlfriend and why I was on TV and even having a writer throw the papers up one day and say ‘Why don’t we just call it the Michelle McCool and Undertaker show?!’
It was nonstop and I went to Vince on numerous occasions and bless his heart he was wonderful, but I just said Vince, I don’t wanna hate something that I grew up loving so much and the longer I stay the more I’m like getting a sour taste in my mouth.
So making that decision to leave was as hard as it is, but more than wanting to be in WWE or be a champion I’ve always wanted to be a mom.”
Since her retirement, she came back to wrestle in the following 3 matches:
1. 2018 Women’s Royal Rumble Match (which was the 1st ever Women’s Rumble)
2. Battle Royal at WWE Evolution 2018 (first & only all-women’s PPV in WWE history)
3. 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble Match
